: Henrik Ibsen for Dummies

23. November 2019 - >

My inspiration comes from human interference between people and with nature. The way we deal with decisions, the possibilities we go for and those we choose to leave, is a constant source of inspiration, together with the joy and struggle in communication between people.

In that picture Ibsen came to me as a perfect inspiration.  Ibsen’s way of describing social life and values is a tremendous source that never gets emptied and he describes hypocritical behaviour and life essential themes that never will be outdated.


Living abroad also made me more interested in the Norwegian culture and social system and I found strong links to how literature, specifically Henrik Ibsen’s work, has made an impact on Norway’s democratic development.  I therefore decided to use his life and plays as inspiration for a series of work.

I work in all kind of materials and have a surrealistic style, looking at things, also serious and sad things, with a humorous glance.
